This cake looks so amazing and I know there are lots of great vegan lemon curd recipes out there, so I'm wondering if there is a vegan cake that would be a good stand in. It's just 2 eggs in the cake, so maybe just replace them with ground chia or flax?

I'm not very good at veganizing things, but this cake looks like heaven (and the perfect Thanksgiving dessert) to me!

I would try replacing one egg with flax and one with soy yogurt or silken tofu. I usually have had best results using two different egg replaces.

Hard to tell from the photo, but maybe it's a sort of short, dense cake? (I'm guessing from the almonds). I remember making this recipe from Celine's blog have cake will travel many years ago and thinking it was not ask cake-y as I'd expected, so it might be worth a try. And it does use soy yogurt, as lavawitch suggests.

Celine recommends a 6 inch pan and I'm pretty sure I used an 8 or 9 inch pan (like I said, it was long ago) and my cake was definitely shorter than the cake in her photos. But it was still soft and moist and delicious!

Oooooh! Thank you both so much! I love the idea of using 2 different egg replacers, I've never heard that before, but it sounds like sound advice!

I think it could be a good candidate for aquafaba (chickpea juice) but I have only tried it in brownies and cookies, not cake.

call me a nut, but i would make isa's lemon bars (vcon?) maybe with only cornstarch and no agar (so it stays more liquidy), add some creamer instead of the milk, and use that instead.

Tell us how it goes! It looks delicious!

Torque, good call on that lemon curd from the lemon bar recipe (it's definitely in the "Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar" book; may well be in Vcon too.) I could seriously roll around in that stuff.
